    KAYTEE® CritterTrail Run-About Habitat is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Great I bought this for my new syrian hamster and he LOVED it! I looked online and most people said the thought this was way too small. Since I travel alot, I got my hamster a carrier which adds quite a bit of room. So this product overall is really nice. Nothing has broken yet and I'll come back and write so if anything does break.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fancy Bear Hamster Good Price and Works I grew up with hamsters before we could afford a dog when I was in 3rd Grade. We did not have the money for all of the cool stuff like this. Now I am 33 and I love KAYTEE Critter tubes and the rest. My Fancy Bear Syrian Hamster (The Biggest Type of Hamster) named Suzy loves to make rooms and organize her home. She has food stores and places to sleep and rest all over. I would like to state that the issues I have read from annoyed people stating that the Hamster is always escaping, chewing, and running out when they open the door. I blame the owner. I know from experience that little kids are not mature enough for Hamsters, frankly. They neglect them, wake them up during the day, stick their fingers in, are rough, get bit, forget to give them water, clean the cage, get annoyed at night and throw a towel over them or shove the cage into the closet. Also, people just buy a Hamster not knowing much about their temperaments of the breed and gender. Generally, the cuter little chubby poof ball Hamsters are actually the type that run and scurry and bite and are the most difficult to tame. The Fancy Bear Hamster, the most expensive and the one that sleeps the most and is less likely to be picked by a child at a glance (also kept on the top shelf at the Petstore where it is difficult for children under 5' to view) are the most gentle and tender. But even they demand respect. I have a good mind to state that any hamster that is chewing on a cage, attempting to escape, especially while you are opening the cage to pet him or her, is likely an unhappy , abused, and or neglected Hamster. Finding a Hamster on the counter-top is impossible unless the cage was not shut properly. These parents are probably just irresponsible and raise spoiled, bratty, children who are naive with regard to respecting a life. They see the Hamster as a toy. And the parents do also. That they blame the cage for the Hamster getting loose is interesting, it tells me that they are too immature as adults for the truth; You suck as pet owners and your children are too dumb to raise a pet like a Hamster. Hamsters should be raised and cared for just like raising a Puppy Dog. They need affection, respect, privacy, sleep, interaction, trust, and friendship. A Hamster which runs away, escapes, is a Hamster that does not want to be in a probably filthy cage with stale water and stale food where they are constantly poked, prodded, thumped about, shaken, and chased around by a gloved hand during their version of night hours. The Hamster is probably suffering anxiety, stress, malnutrition, lack of sleep, and other emotional and health issues. It is no wonder they are trying to run away every time the door opens, chewing up the plastic (which takes a lot of effort, even an inmate with a file can escape Alcatraz if they are motivated enough). Complaints about the latches being stiff and the tubes breaking: Again, points to children who do not have the finesse and experience to assemble the cage properly, the tubes, or latch the cage (which is easy). Admittedly, the tubes were difficult to put together, the water bottle was difficult to get the latch around, and the cage was difficult to assemble. Even for me and I am a strong man who works with his hands. But it is something that can be done without tools. And after a while it does become easier to unlatch the water bottle. The tubes should not be constantly put together and taken apart, think about it. Yes they can be arranged, but the Hamster has a home there and it is not a game to play. Make it, maybe change it a few times, add-on new additions, etc. But taking it apart is not even necessary. Unless the child is attempting to force the Hamster out of a tunnel (which is mean). It is definitely a great product, and I am defending it because it is reasonably priced. And I came from little, without money growing up. So I really am grateful to be able to afford to have a hamster (my apartment does not allow pet cats, dogs, birds here in NW Washington DC). So I love my Hamster. Frankly, I believe that the bad reviews are from parents who bought the Hamster and the KAYTEE cages and tunnels as 'Toys' for their children. Who will likely like the idea for a day or two, and then ignore the Hamster. The parents were upset that the cage required adult assembly, that the Hamster requires as much affection, attention, and training as a Puppy, and that their children are irresponsible, naive, and uneducated as to how to properly care for the Hamster. Thus when they find the cage door open, they blame the Hamster, blame the cage. LOL - I love it, only the suffering of these so called parents is nothing in comparison to the suffering of the poor little friend. Please, do us all a favor and just return the Hamster to the store, or donate it to a class-room.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ginger loved it! I got this a few days ago, and I adored it! It took a long time to set it up, but after a while it held together.My 4 dwarf hamsters ginger, elvis, screetcher, and sqeek liked it so much, they never wanted to go in their balls, but they did anyway. I highly recommend this!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap and cheaply made Cheaply made. We had the duct tape the plastic lookout door closed because our little hamster could push it open and get out. The exercise ball door has to be pried shut with a knife or screw driveer to close it while the hamster is trying to get out at the same time. Too many times we have walked by and the hamster be on the counter looking around instead of in the cage.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Breaks easily I have had this cage for almost 4 years and have had 2 hamsters. The wheel broke so we had to take the tube off so she couldn't climb up. The latch to the lookout also broke. I left it open one day and my hamster jumped out.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from TOO SMALL & UNSUITABLE WHEEL The cage is wayyy to small. The minimum cage size is 450 sq in of floor space and this falls way below the minimum. Also the wheel provided on the cage can cause lots of stress to hamsters. The ball shape may cause hamsters to feel stressed due to feeling trapped. Please do research before getting a new pet :)

    After reading reviews I’m on the fence about purchasing this habitat for our Syrian. He’s very smart and currently can escape his kaytee home look out expansion even after I’ve verified it’s securely closed.  Maybe someone from Kaytee can email me? 

    Asked by: The Oregon Hamster
    Hello there, we'd be more than happy to talk to you about finding the correct habitat! You can reach the Kaytee Consumer Care team at 1-800-529-8331. We look forward to talking to you!

    Does the ball come off to be used to roll around on the floor or a different area?

    Asked by: Mouse lover
    Whoever responded to you at the Kaytee team obviosly does not know anything about the cage. The ball does come off and has a built-in door that slides down. I currently own this cage, and the back clearly states that the ball is detachable.

    can i use this cage for a single gerbil?

    Asked by: mypetgerbil
    No. Too small, gerbils cannot have plastic cages, and gerbils should not be kept alone.

    Will this cage fit a syrian hamster without it getting stuck?

    Asked by: Blondie 1
    No, the tubes have gotten my average weight syrian females stuck in the past. The cage itself is too small anyway.

    I am thinking about getting a winter white hamster. Most of the reviews said that they used this cage for their Syrian hamsters.Will this cage work as well for a winter white?

    Asked by: HHHHB
    No! It’s too small for any hamster. Hamsters regardless of species need 450 square inches at the least.

    I have two of these cages ang on both the doors have one side were there is a larger gap the the other and I am thinking about getting a dwarf hamster, will it be able to escape?

    Asked by: Hamster 123
    This habitat is intended for dwarf hamsters, hamsters, gerbils, mice or other like-sized small animals. The bar spacing is 1/4," so a dwarf hamster will not escape.
